    CJ with 37 last night, 22 in the first quarter. 14/22 from the field and 6/9 from deep. This is going to be fun. Superstar.

    If you want to see all of the buckets. Some of the crossover stepbacks over Anthony Davis are ridiculous.

    Kind of cool seeing a Lehigh alum #2 in the NBA in scoring — at least after Game 1. I’ve got a screen grab of it. Steph Curry #1.

    Anyone from Philadelphia and vicinity. I suggest reading your email next week.

    Anybody interested in catching some CJ show tonight at 10:30 eastern time: NBA League Pass is in “preview” mode, all games available without the subscription. I believe it runs through 11/3. On my cable system, the NBA channels are way up high in the numbers – starting at 725. If you don’t see the NBALP channels on your system, the free trial applies to the online service as well.

    I hope that email is about 1/16! I’m planning to head up to Philly for that one; meeting up with a Lehigh buddy who’s still in the Philly area.

    That was some show. I’m not a big NBA follower, but that was poetry in motion! Sky is the limit for CJ. I hope the email will involve a “Lehigh Roadtrip” to see CJ in Philly.

    Well, he cooled off pretty dramatically in games 2 and 3, both Portland losses. 15 in one game and 16 in the other, but through 3 games, he is at 22.7 ppg, and tied for 9th in the league. His shooting percentage has dropped to about 46% and 41% from 3 point range, so respectable. Hoping he gets it going on a consistent basis, 20-25 per night on a decent shooting percentage. Problem they have is twofold. Lillard is a high volume shooter and shooting under 40% from the field, and outside of CJ, Lillard and Aminu, team has very little.

    I wonder if CJ gives it to Mason Plumlee about 75-70 in Greensboro.

    LOL on the Plumlee reference.

    CJ is the CJ I remember in college but on a larger scale and on a bigger stage. I remember may a night when I walked away thinking that he was less than expected only to find that he put up 20 ps, 5 rbs, 4 assists.The next night he would then light it up and I’d go wow. The season is a long haul. If he finishes the season near the 20ppg, 5 rb, 4 assist mark, I’d be very pleased and so would his agent.

    CJ with 18 in last night’s Blazers win at Minnesota (now 21.5 ppg for season). 36 minutes of run, and I love to see the Blazers at +17 when CJ on the floor, in a 5 point win. Best number of all players in the game. The one part of his offensive game that he needs to work on is his turnover ratio. 4 turnovers last night, and for the season 12 assists and 7 turnovers. Blazers 2-2.

    CJ’s line last night:

    27 pts on on 10-13, and 3-5 from 3. 1 RB, 4 A, and 3 TOs. His +/- was +21, and he’s currently 9th in league scoring, at 22.6 per game.

    I love these CJ hi-light films after seemingly every game. Especially when they say the “guy from Lehigh”

    He produced the 20-5-4 I asked for earlier.

    Appearing on SportsCenter to discuss the 2015-16 NBA season so far, former Trail Blazers executive and ESPN analyst Tom Penn had high praise for Portland’s 4-2 start to the campaign. With experience helping scout and drafting players with Portland and the Memphis Grizzlies, Penn was quick to point to <span style=”text-decoration:underline;”>CJ McCollum’s scoring ability as a key component in the Trail Blazers’ early success:</span>

    “They have two Damian Lillards! CJ McCollum, when he was drafted by Portland, compared perfectly to Damian Lillard… Now, after losing four out of their five starters, CJ’s healthy, and he’s knocking in three-pointers at 46% per clip. They are bombing away!”
